Ford Freestyle vs Rivals: Spec comparison

Ford Freestyle has just been released into the market and we think it is a right time to compare it against its established Rivals like Hyundai i20 active and Honda WR-V. Just so you know, Ford freestyle is a new cross hatchback from the house of American automaker which is looking to tame the Indian market with its newest offering.

Design, Dimensions and Space

In terms of dimensions, there is nothing much to differentiate as these entire three cars stack below 4-meter of length. Cabin width is almost similar in case of Ford freestyle and Honda WR-V and it is the Hyundai i20 active which comes with widest 1760 mm cabin though it loses out to Honda WR-V in terms of height. On the crucial parameter of wheelbase, Hyundai i20 active again comes at the top while Ford freestyle matches it on 190 mm ground clearance. Honda WR-V has the biggest 363-litre boot while Ford freestyle comes with the smallest 257-litre trunk.

Price and value for money

Pricing is the one key area where ford freestyle has a considerable advantage over its rivals. It retails between Rs 5.09-7.89 lakh while Honda WR-V asks between Rs 7.9-10.0 lakh while Hyundai i20 active costs between Rs 6.99-10 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom Delhi). It seems that Ford has learnt a lesson from the past mistakes and now not willing to repeat the pricing blunders again.

Fortuner Vs Endeavour full blown SUV Competing for Buyers Wallet. Real SUV for SUV lovers from Toyota and Ford. Endeavour and Fortuner comes in 4*2 and 4*4 drive train. Fortunately both have the muscle, looks and power under their hoods to take any terrain with ease. Whilst, on paper feature to feature and engine comparison seems to be tilting the balance in favour of the Endeavour, however, Toyota has enough fan following who will willingly ignore any marquee for a Toyota at any price. Lucky Toyota.
